Allu Arjun's Pushpa gave Rashmika the push she needed to establish herself as a pan-Indian actress.

Rashmika is now set to make her Bollywood debut as well with the actress starring in Mission Majnu alongside Siddharth Malhotra.

Now, it looks like she's bagged another big role in a Bollywood movie.

According to reports, Rashmika is in the running to star in the third instalment of Bollywood's Aashiqui series.

Kartik's presence in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 made sure that he's one actor that all directors can bank upon right now and looks like people think that the best actress that can be paired opposite him would be Rashmika, who has a crazy fan following across India.

According to Bollywood Hungama, Rashmika has gone on to beat many other actresses to be paired alongside Kartik in Aashiqui 3.

While there's no official announcement yet, a source close to the development told Bollywood Hungama about the update.

The source revealed how Kartik and Rashmika would be a fresh pairing that could be successful for Hindi movies. With Kartik already acting alongside Kriti Sanon and Ananya Panday in the past, many feel that he needs to be paired with a fresh face.

“Kartik and Rashmika are a fresh pair. Kartik has done films with Kriti Sanon, Kiara Advani and even Ananya Panday. He needs to be paired with new faces. The ad that Kartik and Rashmika did together is a rage. There is a population out there waiting to see them together in a full-fledged film,” said the source.

The second Aashiqui film starred Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles and was a hit.

The movie revolved around the story of Rahul (Aditya), a singing sensation, falling in love with Aarohi (Shraddha), a woman who sings at a bar. The plot later had Rahul help Aarohi accomplish her dream of becoming a famous singer, however, at a cost.

The movie, which was released in 2013, was a commercial success at the box office despite featuring newcomers, and was one of the highest-grossing Hindi films of 2013, earning over ₹109 crores (US$14 million) within the first four weeks.
